How to Get Started with AdNow?
In order to get started with AdNow Publisher, you can simply visit the site and Sign up with the necessary information. After successfully signing up you need to log in to get access into your dashboard from where you will be managing your sites, creating ad widgets and monitoring over-all performance.
Here is the look of a clean and user-friendly dashboard that you will face just after logging in.
You can easily add your existing sites/blogs in the dashboard using “Add site” button. After adding your site go to the WIDGETS tab to create a new widget for your site. You can change the appearance, background colour, text colour etc. so that the widget suits better with your site/blog.
After creating your widget just copy the HTML code and paste on your blog where you want to show Native ads. It’s that SIMPLE! Now, it’s time for monitoring the earning and performance which can be done easily from the STATISTICS tab.
If your blog is created on WordPress (as I’ve instructed you in our How to Start a Blog Complete Guide) instead of copy/paste the code you can use the WordPress plugin developed by Adnow.
AdNow Referral Program
AdNow referral program offers affiliates to earn 5% of the publisher’s earnings for a lifetime from the date of signup. So, if you refer a publisher who is making $100 per day from Adnow, you will be receiving a commission of $5 per day.
This can be pretty lucrative if you can refer 2-3 such publishers every month.
However, the problem with Adnow is the low retention rate. This means, publishers tend to go away from Adnow after a period of time and this results in a decrease in referral commissions
